In a few hours the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olymics in Brazil will be opened officially. In this thread you may share your thoughts, shout out publically supporting your favorite sport athletes, teams and share whatever you like (within the site and FM ToS), like interesting facts, figures and articles.


A few figures about these Olympic Games:

It's the first time the Olympic Games are being held in South America;
The opening ceremony will be held @ the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil;
10,500 athletes from all over the world will try to break Olympic, World, National and Personal Best records;
242 athletes from The Netherlands participate.

The official site: https://www.rio2016.com/en

Watch live: http://nos.nl/rio2016/ Widget on the right, commentary in Dutch (top few channels), rest without commentary.



I'll be personally supporting and encouraging these 2 countries:

The United States of America
The Netherlands


Sports I like to watch are (womens):

- Swimming
- Equestrian
- Football
- Gymnastics
- Surfing
- Running
- Cycling
(INPO)


Good luck, all!


Hello Samantha

Bravo ! Victory



OH NOOO!!! Ugly crash near the finish.... Theo just got 1,600 lbs of horse muscle on his back @ 20 mph... Poor Zidane.... And Theo got lucky he can still walk ... silent They left the race Sad Well, that's cross-country alright, pushing the limits in an endurance race, both horse and human.
